I may have butchered that a bit.
On the older fox stabilizer, there was a thin spacer on the shaft. They told me the extra travel by removing it is the only difference between the years.

So I ordered and installed this. Took about 20 mins. Will know on drive to work tomorrow if it helped the bump steer. Got it off of Amazon.
Fingers crossed

A pitman arm puller. Fit perfectly. A few cranks and it popped right out

2.5" leveling kit. Stock tires for now. No death wobble- just bump-steer.

NP.
As far as torque specs, I referred to a drawing from another post. 67ft lbs on the frame end (I used loctite also) and 60 ft lbs on the other end.

So I'm happy to report the Fox single was a big improvement! At least on my truck. My normal bump steer is 99% gone. The steering is noticeably heavier. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
